Not sure whether I've posted this in this thread or not. It's an argument for why the federal government should enter the business of selling all recreational drugs: Why the government needs to sell drugs

Sure, alcohol can too. Being dumb hurts. I exercise harm reduction principles, and emphasize education and rigorous dosing and ROA acumen. And I know several people who've consumed copious amounts of cocaine over long periods of time and lived to tell of it.

I've never tried it. Doesn't mean I wouldn't. I've used ketamine, dextromethorphan, methoxetamine (among my favorite molecules!), and nitrous (and salvia which is an atypical dissociative). The vast majority of the trip reports for phencyclidine don't involve anything remotely like run-ins with the police: Erowid: PCP Trip Reports

And Alexander Shulgin, the Godfather of Psychedelics, who discovered, synthesized, and used hundreds of different potent psychedelic and dissociative and empathogenic substances, who literally wrote the book on them, made it 89 years.

Absurd.

A good documentary to help look at things a little bit differently is: Neurons To Nirvana : The Great Medicines

Here are some reasons to try / use some substances: Ten reasons why you should start doing drugs

And did everyone see this? US govt-funded agency admits marijuana can kill cancer cells

Saw those articles, I believe there is even one on the Author kicking around here, but with only one biased reply. *EDIT* HERE it is.

As a late to the party 4/21 post, I thought this was nice:

I have NEVER even once tried it, but I too feel it is along the lines of alcohol in the issues/problems it would create. I really do not see the big deal, and this country deals with FAR too many social/legal issues to "waste" the time and money we do in the penal/judicial system on pot. JMHO.....

I apologize IF this has already been mentioned..But IF Gov. did say such a think..I'd bet he's not complaining about the 76 million in revenue that came into the coffers in 2014 alone..44 mil in taxes and 32 million in business fees. Then of course the hundreds of millions in sales that are benefiting the communities.

Why not regulate it instead of users purchasing it like Russian Roulette, not knowing just what's included in that baggy..At least now they know.

No, he did not say that. He was taken out of context by a piece of horrible msn reporting. This quote is from post #30 in this thread:

Quote:
Wow, that article presents just the first half of his thought, making it look like he said something he didn't. How dishonest of them!

He did say that if he had a magic wand on election day, he would've reversed it. But, he added a BUT, he said now he wouldn't, that it's been a good thing for Colorado.

I can't find the full clip, but I did find this segment from the same interview:

Colorado Gov. on the future of legal weed - 60 Minutes Videos - CBS News

Does that sound like someone who thinks they made a big mistake?

EDIT: I found it!

The marijuana effect - 60 Minutes Videos - CBS News

Watch at 12:00. Around 12:20 he uses the exact words referenced by the OP's link, and you can see he was taken completely out of context.

I had a sneaky suspicion that it was not in context of what he was actually saying. I guess those Marijuana haters will continue to claim he did tho just to rationalize their POV/Agenda.. War on Drugs is a Good thing don't ya know

Other than the difficulties getting things set up and Federal Laws that make the commerce part difficult..so has to be a Cash Business for now. Must be difficult...but it sure hasn't affected the revenue's created by legalizing Statewide..
